Perkins celebrates production of its 20 millionth engine

Perkins recently celebrated a major milestone with the production of its 20 millionth engine.
Perkins is one of the world’s leading suppliers of off-highway diesel and gas engines. In 1998 Perkins became a wholly owned subsidiary of Caterpillar.
81 years after the brand was established, the 20 millionth Perkins engine, a 1206 two-stage turbo tier 4 diesel engine, rolled off the production line at the company’s facility in Peterborough, UK. At a small ceremony, attended by around 70 employees, Perkins president Ramin Younessi said, “20 million engines is a significant achievement of which we’re all very proud. Our global manufacturing facilities have all contributed to this milestone.”  Perkins is one of the world’s leading suppliers of off-highway diesel and gas engines in the industry. Its engines are manufactured across four continents and power more than 800 different applications in the construction, power generation, agricultural, material handling, industrial and marine markets.
Perkins has the capacity to manufacture 800,000 engines a year from its current manufacturing facilities in Peterborough and Stafford, UK; Griffin in Georgia, USA; Curitiba in Brazil; and Wuxi in China; a number which will increase when the new Perkins facility in Aurangabad opens.
